[IC] GMK Toxic
« on: Tue, 17 September 2019, 16:37:47 »
Hello everyone!

Probably everyone knows me but if not i am T0mb3ry and i did some sets here and there ;)
Anyway as i joined Geekhack i was basically drawn into this hobby with keysets like Penumbra, Pulse and Toxic. It was year 2014. Now i got GMK Penumbra and i am waiting for GMK Pulse. But i am still missing GMK Toxic.

After some talks with relevant people, i got the permission to do this IC for GMK Toxic.


Welcome to GMK Toxic interest check.


First things first. It's obvious i am not the designer of Toxic and i don't have any claims (besides the novelties in Desolator kit). Designer of Toxic is Danielucf and i've talked with him and Bunnylake about the original design and colors. I made the decision to follow the original design which is fully covered in the base kit. Both colors will be custom. To match the colors i will get DCS Toxic samples for the grey tones. The green will be matched after Pantone 389C which was chosen in the original Toxic design.

The US vendor will be https://www.originativeco.com/
I am not sure about EU/ASIA vendors but its all possible i guess...

Base kit
This is the original Toxic design. Notable is here the signature Toxic stripe.


Toxic mods


Toxic novelties


Desolator kit
Since i am doing the kit design, i thought about to offer some novelties of mine as addition. The Ansi enter novelty is missing because i am still working on it.


Because the Group Buy will be organized by Originative you can assume that there will be an artisan raffle for this keyset.

If you have constructive feedback or a suggestion, then please reply below.

The IC thread will last about two weeks and GB might happen shortly after i close this IC thread.

The set to get me into this hobby was DCS Toxic, it took me a few years after that to finally secure a set of JTK Toxic.

I am all on board for this, if Daily Clack can't be a proxy, I'll buy a few sets in the very least!

T0mb3ry, I bought an iso enter 1 key keypad because of your rolling bones iso enter, and now you've gone and eclipsed it

Would buy carbon warning signs in toxic color too. Just sayin.

It would be great to have yellow alphas too.
If possible,wish to separate the yellow spacebars to be a single kit.

I do try to hit the original design as good as possible but i want this to be Cherry OG icon mods because the colors have pretty good contrast on each other. If next round happens (one day probably) then it can be done with icon + mods.

I do have JTK Toxic too but ... personally its not toxic for me. The colors are way too off. This Toxic is going to be as close as possible to the original design. And its GMK - so its best and you can't get better.

Yes he is ;)

Right now there is no ortho support and no spacebar kit. Tho if it sells well then i can develop those kits and add it during the GB.

Fair, personally I don't like icon mods with text bottom row but I understand your reasoning.

Regardless, this'll be a must-buy for me. Super keen  :thumb:

ISO NOVELTY! HOLY ****LORD! and what a BEAST! :eek: :eek: :eek:

...came to my mind after casually scrolling and thinking "well, it does pretty much like terminal, so i guess i won't need this." i was wrong, once again.
seriously, are there face-to-face comparison pics with toxic and terminal? from all the different google pics with tons of different lightning i can not be sure how different it'll come out.

would it be possible to add some kind of gas mask novelty in the style of the warning signs? fits the theme and would be dope af imo.

looking at the timeframe for this, maybe running along with sa yuri, for me personally a bad timing because i have to bite the bullet of buying two sets in the same month, which i was planning not to do anymore, but i just can't skip this! gotta support the iso novelty love! :thumb:

Lighting might not be ideal, but there is a pretty significant difference. Here is a comparison to Terminal, and one to the yellow of Serika:





The neat thing about Pantone 389C is next to shades of green it looks greener, and next to shades of yellow it appears more yellow. Kind of a cool effect it has more in person than in photography.

Update

Desolator kit
- Added salty keys
- Added US Ansi enter novelty. Obviously the ISO enter looks here better but it is how it is.

Pardon but weeb legends are extremely overused and Toxic is def not about Japan. It does not match it in any way.

As far as i know (take it with a grain of salt because i am not responsible for pricing), the pricing will be competitive (depending also on many factors like amount of keys etc. but that's always the case) during the group buy. If you get into GB it will not cost you much more than on other vendors. So you should not be worry actually. I don't know how the pricing will be after group buy.

I like these colors. What I'm worried about is how the set will really look. So samples are needed ASAP.
There is a mistake in ISO: there are two keys which are identical, and they shouldn't be.
\| R3 and R4 keys
Since you deliver from EU, this could be a nice, original and inexpensive set. Wait. Is it going to be run by originative with import taxes and all?

I have no grip on vendors etc. I am doing only the ic and kit design.

The base does not really support ISO but offers ISO compatibility. The pipe keys are fillers for ISO, so they are on point.

Having two identical keys is really annoying.

UK iso has
# R3
\| R4

DE ISO has
# R3
<> R4

So surely R4 should be #.
Personally I'd like <> R3. I'll make a stat of EU use of that if you need some hard numbers.
